@BFeldmanCBS
I'm told Notre Dame will have an official comment on the Deadspin Manti Te'o story shortly.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

I kinda understand how the story spun out of control and took on a life he never intended...

But why was the story invented in the first place? This thing began like 3 years ago before a Heisman race or any REAL need for PR existed.

Plausible. He certainly wasn't on the field 9 days ago.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

Is it really that surprising? Biggest fraud player on the biggest fraud team committs massive fraud.

Here's a long detailed article

http://deadspin.com/5976517/manti-te...ason-is-a-hoax

How in the hell does the national sports media run with the story for months and nobody does basic fact checking on it.

I'd believe this if there weren't thousands of ND girls that would be absolutely willing to just be arm candy.

Just so people know the media doesn't always paint the correct picture.. They just care about getting a good story and nothing else matters

#NotreDame statement says on Dec. 26, coaches informed by Manti Te'o and parents that he was "victim of what appears to be a hoax."
Quote:
Brett McMurphy ‏@McMurphyESPN

ND: "Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself w/Manti & then conspired w/others to lead him believe she had tragically died of leukemia"
Quote:
Nov. 28, 2009: Te'o and Kekua meet after Stanford's 45-38 victory over Notre Dame in Palo Alto, according to the South Bend Tribune: "Their stares got pleasantly tangled, then Manti Te'o extended his hand to the stranger with a warm smile and soulful eyes." Kekua, a Stanford student, swaps phone numbers with Te'o.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

Is it somehow possible that this began without Te'o's knowledge and then later figured out the girl didn't exist and was too embarrassed to say anything?
